Thread Name: Origins: John o' Dreams (Bill Caddick)
Subject: RE: John O' Dreams
I think its just giving sleep a personality. When I was a kid in Ireland my mother used to refer to the night as old Johnny Dark. She would say, "its time for bed Old Johnny Dark's down." Scared the crap out of us to I must admit imagining this wierd old guy creeping around outside.
